SCARLET FEVER HAS HIT HOLLYWOOD

 

There’s definitely something in the air in Hollywood. It seems like every starlet is itching to go red for spring. There’s something so bright and vibrant about crimson locks. Maybe these celebs have discovered that it’s actually redheads, not blondes, who have more fun!

Emma Stone – America’s newest Sweetheart. She’s so bubbly and charming… it’s rare to find such a likable, poised young star. Her bright red hair only adds to her appeal. A little known secret, though, is that she’s actually a natural blonde!

Rachel McAdams – Known as a hair chameleon, Rachel is always dyeing her tresses a fun new hue. Platinum blonde in Mean Girls, brunette in The Vow, a soft red in The Notebook… she’s even added pink streaks to her hair before. Most recently, the actress has gone deep crimson for a look that’s bold and fresh.

Megan Fox – Megan is the latest star to jump on the red hair bandwagon. Although it’s just a temporary change for her new flick, Megan looks great with the new shade. It’s fun to switch things up every once in awhile.

Dianna Agron – Perhaps taking a cue from her redheaded Glee costar Jayma Mays, the famous blonde has dyed her hair an appropriately summery shade. It suits her even more than her golden locks… she might want to consider making this change permanent.

Kirsten Dunst – Kirsten burst into the spotlight as a cheery blonde in Bring It On, but her career really kicked into high gear when she went red to play Mary Jane in the Spiderman movies. She’s one of those girls who can rock any hair color and look beautiful.

Rihanna – A new day, a new hairstyle for Rihanna. The pop star often turns to fire engine red to brighten up her locks. It’s definitely show stopping, and definitely something only RiRi can pull off. Long, short, red, black, blonde, Rihanna is always trying something new… adour it.

Lily Cole – The supermodel shows how sophisticated red hair can truly be. She always stands out on the runway or in editorials because of her striking strands and gorgeous face, reminiscent of a porcelain doll.

DIY RED: HOW TO MAINTAIN IT

 

Only a lucky few are natural-born redheads. For the others who rock auburn or crimson shades, it likely comes straight from a bottle. In order to get the most out of your dye job, there are certain products and tips to keep your gorgeous color for as long as possible.

Color Shampoo – It is absolutely necessary to use color shampoo. This seems like common sense to most, but it’s a little known fact that some of these shampoos can actually strip your hair of color. Use sulfate-free shampoos to make sure harsh chemicals don’t damage your hair. L’Oreal EverPure Smooth Shampoo is an inexpensive, effective treatment.

Argan Oil – Dyeing your hair is not the healthiest thing in the world. Frequent visits to the salon can cause damage to your tresses. To ensure your hair stays as silky smooth as possible, use products that contain Argan oil. The oil, rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, restores life to limp hair. Try deep conditioning with an Argan oil treatment, like Agadir Argan Oil Conditioner.

Color Glaze – Salons use glazes to boost shine and color, but you can get the same treatment at home. Many color glazes are available at beauty spots like Ulta and Sephora. Ulta’s Ultimate Red Color Restoring Glaze restores color and shine to dyed locks.

Don’t Wash Too Much! – It’s something you have probably heard a million times, and you always choose to ignore, but it’s true: if your hair is treated, do not wash it too much! Dye fades extremely quickly, especially a shade as vibrant as red. Reducing the amount of times a week you wash it will prolong the life of your beautifully colored strands.

FIVE SPRING BREAK BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

1. Sunscreen – You’re heading into the sweltering heat after months of gloomy winter days. For that reason, you could increase your risk of getting a sunburn and it’s even more crucial than usual to apply sunscreen. With its lightweight, matte coverage, Murad’s Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30 is perfect for a shine-free finish. It’s also fantastic for sensitive skin. – $32

2. Hair Protectant – A long day at the beach can take a toll on your hair. Fekkai Summer Hair After Sun Daily Mask acts as a deep conditioner that detangles and revitalizes heat-affected hair. The mask protects hair from harmful UV rays and prevents color from fading. It keeps hair fresh and lively on even the most humid days. – $25

3. Lip Treatment – Nothing feels worse than parched, dry, chapped lips. Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15 by Fresh is quickly becoming a popular favorite. With eight lightly tinted, fruity shades, these balms protect your lips in the sun while hydrating and nourishing. Make sure to use the balm at night before applying lipstick or gloss for a plumping, healthy effect. – $22.50

4. Moisturizing Cream – What’s the point of lying in the sun for hours to get a deep tan if it fades and peels as quickly as it appeared? To make sure that doesn’t happen, apply an after sun moisturizer, like the one from Hampton Sun, at the end of the day. The hydrating formula is specifically designed to prolong your glow. Aloe is a crucial component to any moisturizer for cooling and calming down skin. – $32

5. Post-Hangover – Even when you’re feeling your worst, you should still try to look your best. Curing a hangover starts from the inside out… you must drink plenty of water and take an aspirin or two. Sometimes, though, that’s just not enough. Before heading on your vacation, invest in a long-lasting concealer that provides full coverage. Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener is lightweight, compact and covers dreaded under-eye circles. – $30

“I think I could be the voice of my generation. Or… a voice. Of a generation.” It’s safe to say that no show has made more of an impact on pop culture in recent history than HBO’s Girls. Not since Carrie Bradshaw appeared on our TV screens in her six inch Manolos has a show been more scrutinized for its cultural influence.

This past January, nail guru Deborah Lippmann released a polish collection inspired by the four very different girls on the hit show. Lippmann has given fans an opportunity to try on each personality for themselves. Hannah is a muddy hunter green, slightly weird and definitely unique, just like Lena Dunham herself. Marnie is a classic, safe baby pink. Pretty, prissy and proper… simply Marnie. Shoshanna is a bright, refreshing lavender. Trendy and feminine, it’s right on point. Jessa is a deep, seductive burgundy. Dark and sexy, it perfectly encompasses the character’s boho mystique.

TIMELESS HAIR ACCESSORIES

 

Hair accessories can completely take a look to the next level. From jewels to hats, celebrities love using different accessories to elevate their outfit. Four iconic styles gives us some hair inspiration!

Headband – No character is more closely associated with an accessory than Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf and her headbands. It was tough to choose just one, but this pink floral headband from an early episode of the series is just so feminine and cute that we had to showcase it.

 Hair clip – Hair clips come in an assortment of sizes and styles, but without a doubt the most glamorous are bejeweled ones. Zooey Deschanel truly looked like a star with her gigantic clip at the Grammys. It provided just the right touch of elegance and drama for a high-profile event.

Jewelry – For a recent Oscars afterparty, Emmy Rossum rocked a one of a kind Chopard diamond, aquamarine and freshwater pearl headpiece. Almost like a tiara, the versatile, $2 million dollar statement piece can also be worn as a necklace. So gorgeous and chic!

Fascinator – The hair accessory of royalty might look ridiculous on many of us, but oh-so-glamorous on the right head. Philip Treacy is the go-to fascinator designer, with his over the top, regal designs. No wonder Kate Middleton is a huge fan.

PETER BUTLER HAIR ADVENTURES

 

Celebrity hair stylist Peter Butler is behind major red carpet “hair” moments, working with the locks of Claire Danes, Natalie Portman, JLo, Emma Stone and many others. This happens when he is not on the set of fashion shoots with acclaimed photographers like Annie Leibovitz and Patric Demarchelier, and creating covers for the Sports illustrated Swimsuits Edition and Rolling Stone magazine. His work is way more complex than it appears, as he shares with The Daily Pamp.

Being from a big family has taught me to stay focused in the most chaotic situations, a talent that served me well in my career as a hair stylist. Patience is key in my field of work, as you don’t always have the time you need, and anything can create delays. When preparing a celebrity for a red carpet, I have to wait my turn and then jump in and operate in the quickest, most effective way. Often, I work with several people at the same time, such as the make up artist and nail technician, we are literally on top of each other, and things generally run more smoothly if I have worked with them before.

Things can happen, like a client is two hours delayed from the airport or stuck in traffic between two jobs. Once, an actress’ dress ripped moments before she stepped out, and I had to sew it myself because I was the only person with a thread and needle, which I always carry for hair extensions! Another time, flying to an exotic location for a shoot, they lost my luggage with all my tools. I had to make the best of it, buying what I could find from the nearest convenience store!

The experience is stressful for clients that are facing the red carpet as well, so besides making them look beautiful, I try to give them emotional support, because they are often facing one of the most crucial moments in their career. I also want their hair to look perfect for the whole evening, and the trick for a strong hold is a good blow dry at the base. Of course I have some go-to products to get the look, like Oribe’s Volumista to give volume at the roots, and for hold, Leonor Greyl’s Eclat Naturel styling cream and the classic Elnett hair spray.

LEGENDARY UPDOS

Your hair is the ultimate accessory. There are so many options and styles to try when it comes to hairdos, from loose chignons to perfect topknots. Below are eight of our favorite updos throughout history, including classics by movie stars, ballerinas, and even royalty.

1. The Audrey Hepburn – Everyone knows which updo this refers to… the classic from Breakfast at Tiffany’s features a beautiful crystallized clip right in the middle of her hair. Can you picture anyone getting this dressed up for window shopping and breakfast now?!

2. The Brigitte Bardot – The original bombshell. Bardot’s messy updo just oozed sex appeal. It may be forty years old, but even a modern-day girl would feel hot with this hairstyle.

3. The Julia Roberts – For one of her biggest career moments – her 2001 Oscar win – Julia Roberts decided to go dramatic. The larger-than-life ‘do is bold, intricate and simply gorgeous.

4. The Swirl – There are some styles that are so unique and crazy, only certain people can pull them off. Gwen Stefani is one of those people with her swirly, platinum blonde ‘do.

5. The Braid – Who says you have to pick just one hairstyle? Jessica Alba included a delicate braid in her intricate updo at the 2008 Oscars. Soft and feminine, this was a perfect showcase for just how beautiful an updo can be.

6. The Black Swan – Buns and ballerinas are practically synonymous. In the modern classic Black Swan, Natalie Portman’s ballerina character rocks more than a few updos, but the most memorable is her low chignon topped off with a tiara.

7. The Princess – For Princess Charlene’s 2011 wedding to Prince Albert of Monaco, the beauty went for a timeless chignon that was covered in crystals. Regal, feminine and beautiful, it was definitely a hairstyle worthy of royalty.

8. The Top Knot – The trendiest updo of the moment is the top knot. Sleek and simple, this ballerina-inspired ‘do is as pretty as it is easy to do. Beyonce makes it look effortless to take on the look.
